Petrology and Plate Tectonics
Allen Glazner, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
This course is organized around the igneous and metamorphic processes that govern the rock cycle, all within the context of plate tectonics. Rather than addressing igneous and metamorphic rocks and processes as ...

Phillip G. Resor: Using GPS, Strain, and Earthquakes in Structural Geology at Wesleyan University
My course is one of several core courses that Earth and Environmental Science major students can choose from at Wesleyan. The course integrates field and laboratory exercises, quantitative analyses, and readings from the primary literature to teach students about rock deformation and its importance to a variety of societally relevant problems. I taught the GPS, Strain and Earthquakes module about midway through the course after students had been introduced to concepts of deformation, mapping and measurement of geologic structures and quantification of stress.

Vince Cronin: Using GPS, Strain, and Earthquakes in Structural Geology at Baylor University
Students get particularly excited when they learn that GPS deformation analyses are a recent research area that most geology majors are not even studying yet and are really tickled to learn frontier science. Learning about earthquakes from the position of research that could be helpful to societal planning, empowers them to think about geology in a much more active way: make geohazards more manageable. They were very interested to see the link between GPS measurements of strain in the crust and faults and folds that seem to be the product or physical manifestation of the strain that they computed. And where those faults pass through population centers, they came to understand the growing threat faced by the people of those communities.

Introduction to Volcanology
Erouscilla Joseph, University of the West Indies
The course will introduce students to Plate tectonics and volcanoes; including the processes that takes place at active volcanoes (eruptive mechanisms, effusive and explosive volcanism); methods and instrumentation ...

Structural Geology with Field Geology lab
Phil Resor, Wesleyan University
In this majors-level course students learn how to 1) collect data for structural and tectonic analyses, 2) synthesize and analyze these data to generate and test hypotheses, and 3) apply these structural and ...

Structural Analysis of Rocks and Regions (SARR)
Florian Fusseis, The University of Edinburgh
SARR aims to reverse the theory-first/application-second approach of most common structural geology textbooks. It confronts students with lectures and practicals on deformed regions around the globe that, combined, ...

Using Field Observations and Field Experiences to Teach GeoscienceAn Illustrated Community Discussion
Karen Grove, San Francisco State University
The introductory level course teaches geology majors basic skills in the context of a field-based problem, the integrating theme for the semester, so that they can more rapidly achieve an advanced skill level in ...

Structural Geology
Angela Moore, Guilford College
An introductory structural geology course that includes the study of stress and strain, rheology, qualitative aspects of brittle and ductile deformation processes, and descriptive analysis. Tectonics is also ...

Advanced Field Geology
Steve Reynolds, Arizona State University at the Tempe Campus
This is a field-based course, taught during four weekends, spread out over the semester. Each trip generally visits a different locality in order to expose students to diverse types of geology, everything from ...

Structural Geology
Jamie Levine
This course is an upper-level structural geology course with a focus on understanding stress, strain, the formation of geologic structures, and 3-D visualization.

Geological Applications of GPS Geodesy
Guoquan Wang, University of Puerto Rico-Mayaguez
This course provides an overview of the major space geodetic techniques and focuses on the theory and practice of the Global Positioning System (GPS). The course also provides hands-on experience using GPS data to ...

Structural Geology
Dan Morgan, Vanderbilt University
This course addresses many topics about how rocks break and deform, for which I try to emphasize applications to earthquakes, hydraulic fracturing, hydrocarbon extraction, and landscape evolution.

Plate Tectonics
Sarah Titus, Carleton College

Structural Geology and Tectonics
Steve Hurst, University of Illinois at Chicago
Junior -senior level course introduction to structural geology and tectonics

Structural Geology (EAS 425)
Kyle Fredrick, Pennsylvania Western University - California
Conventional Structural Geology course with a primary focus on recognizing and measuring structure. Considerable time is spent on graphical analysis of structures (3-point problems, stereonets, remote and field ...
